Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister Véronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems. I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter ...

I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age.
I retired May 25th, 2012.
My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life.

With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem. (I am in gray in the first picture, and turquoise in the second)

Member Since: 4/9/2010

SparkPoints: 75,936

Fitness Minutes: 73,944

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

I'll have to figure out a better blog site than one hosted by Google +j. I've had to resort to cutting and pasting Morticia's comments from her emails!

I still have the old scale. When I want to feel good I weigh on the new one and then weigh on the old one. LOL

Thanks for the goodie and the thoughts about Raiden. He had a very tough time with the 4th round of chemo, kept puking up his NG feeding tube so they did a study to check for anatomy and he goes in tomorrow for a J-G tube to be placed through the abdomen. Another procedure but I suspect he'll be more than willing since it means no more nurses coming at him with new tubes to shove in his nose. I think he has one more round of chemo to go before the big surgery and he really needs some nutrition. One good thing, is that when he's not sick and puking he still desires cookies and cheese. LOL We're grateful for small things.

Ginie, I think it's funny because someone is coming to clean but most people will pick up things before the cleaning person(s) get there. Lol!
Have a blessed day. emoticon

Great job on keeping on with your streaks! emoticon
